The Sig Sauer P365 High-Capacity Micro-Compact has remained a popular option for those looking for an everyday carry firearm. Chambered in 9x19mm Parabellum, and rated for +P (higher pressure) ammunition while utilizing offset double-stack magazines, the polymer frame striker-fired semi-automatic is everything a shooter could want. It is easy to see how it was the best-selling handgun in the United States in both 2018 and 2019.

Last month, the firearms maker made a good thing even better when it announced that the Sig Sauer Custom Works P365 Fire Control Unit began shipping. The standalone P365 Fire Control Unit (FCU) was developed to provide an entirely new level of customization and personalization to the world’s most popular micro-compact, everyday carry pistol. It offers the ability to build a completely custom P365 by utilizing the exclusive Sig Custom Works P365 Studio at the company’s website.

“The P365 pistol was groundbreaking because it brought an unprecedented,10+1, 12+1, or 15+1 capacity to a micro-compact everyday carry pistol,” said Tom Taylor, Sig Sauer‘s chief marketing officer and executive vice president, in a blog post. “The revolutionary design and innovation of the P365 took the market by storm to become the world’s most popular, everyday carry pistol. Now with the introduction of the P365 Fire Control Unit we have brought an entirely new level of customization and personalization to the P365 platform – America’s most popular micro-compact pistol is now also the most customizable.”

Serialized Fire Control

The patented FCU, which is available now at select retailers, features a titanium nitride coating, a titanium nitride flat trigger, a custom FCU Serial Number and is compatible with all 9mm P365 accessories.

“In conjunction with the availability of the P365 FCU in retail stores, we have also launched the SIG Custom Works P365 Studio online at sigsauer.com,” noted Taylor, who explained that everything from grip modules to optics can be customized – allowing shooters to configure their P365 in thousands of different ways, the studio has it all right at your fingertips

“This level, and ease, of customization, was first introduced through the popular P320 Custom Works Studio, and based on the overwhelming popularity, and quite honestly the demand, to incorporate your personality to your pistol, we are bringing the capabilities of the SIG Custom Works Studio to the P365,” Taylor added.

Additionally, the Sig Custom Works Studio also provides firearms enthusiasts with a unique online experience and allows them build a P320 or P365 pistol from the ground up by choosing a grip module, slide, barrel, guide rod and springs, optics, accessories, or have complete CAL-X Kits (P320 only) with the virtual configurator. All parts available within the Custom Works Studio are also available for purchase direct from the manufacturer.

    I purchased a Sig P-365 for my wife before I learned that there was a variant with a physical safety. I have to wonder if Sig had product safety concerns prior to coming out with a safety lever feature. Would the weapon be safe enough for carry as is in a jacket pocket or purse?

    It’s the best CC pistol on the market without the customization.. With it I can only imagine it’s even better!

    Frank, it’s not a customization. It’s a factory design change, or a factory design feature. There was a reason for the manual safety lever. Was the reason due to safety concerns of the original P-365 without the manual safety? I like and own a number of Sig pistols, so my reason for inquiring is not nefarious. My reason is over a genuine safety concern.
